Initial Certification indicates that physicians have met rigorous standards through intensive study, accredited training and evaluation and that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care.

MOC is a professionally determined standard that attests that an internist is staying current in knowledge and practice throughout his/her career.

For more than 75 years, Certification by ABIM has stood for the highest standard in internal medicine and its 20 subspecialties.

Exam Results and Program Director Reports

ABIM provides two separate reports to internal medicine and subspecialty training programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Professional Corporation of Physicians of Quebec.

The individual pass/fail Certification exam results report (“Exam Results”) and the program director’s Program Performance Report (“Program Director Report”) summarize the ABIM Certification examination performance of residents and fellows completing training in the program.

Both reports are provided to program directors and program coordinators via FasTrack.
